About the Software
IBM Tivoli Monitoring V6.2.1 increases the performance and availability of Amazon EC2 resources by identifying potential issues before they impact users, and either automating corrective actions or providing key diagnostic data to allow for quicker recovery of the service.
IBM Tivoli Monitoring delivers these capabilities:
- Out-of-the-box situations measure performance and availability of resources against predefined thresholds, alerting appropriate personnel when a potential issue is discovered
- Correlation of situations increases the quality of alerts, allowing operators and administrators to focus on true issues, rather than sorting through an abundance of unnecessary alerts
- Workflows can easily be created using a simple, intuitive graphical interface to define policies for automated or manual response to conditions
- Visualization of real-time and historical data side-by-side helps to spot trends, understand the impact of changes in the environment, and diagnose issues in the context of the alert without having to use a multitude of disparate tools
- Expert Advice provides a preloaded, customizable knowledge base, which enhances the ability of non-experts to resolve issues without having to involve the experts
